Self-isolation has taught many of us not to be afraid to be alone with ourselves. More and more often we look deep into ourselves and learn to hear our desires. “New Year – a family holiday” – sounds again from every iron, and we take out our pajamas, pour champagne, get comfortable in the armchair and turn on our favorite movie. Who said that this night cannot be dedicated only to yourself?
According to statistics, 3% of the population of our country – and this is about 4 million people – annually celebrate the New Year alone. It is likely that this figure will rise due to new restrictions due to the coronavirus. In the meantime, you can figure out the options for how best and more comfortable (for yourself, of course) to carry out the outgoing 2020 – y.
STUDY IN PAJAMON TONES
Don’t feel like styling your hair and poring over your makeup? There are no new dresses and are not expected? In any situation, your favorite pajamas with deer will help out. Suddenly you wanted to put on your lips with lilac lipstick and put on a transparent jumpsuit on your naked body? On this night, you can afford this: it’s good that there is a reason, but there is no one around.
IT’S EVERYTHING IN MAGIC BUBBLES
What could be better than a New Year’s bathroom? That’s right, just a New Year’s bath with champagne (both inside – for the mood, and outside – for the scent) to the “Irony of Fate” or any other film that you never got around to. A variation on a theme – find a channel with New Year’s karaoke and sing as if no one is listening. From the heart, loudly, loudly, not afraid to hurt the gentle ears of the neighbors.
NOT A READER BUT A WRITER
You can start the New Year with a clean slate in the truest sense of the word. Why not? Write on a piece of paper all your innermost dreams and imagine your happy future in the brightest colors. Further more. Start writing your memoirs. Who knows if this New Year’s Eve will be the start of your writing career?
WALK DO NOT OVERGUE
If the mood, which can change several times a night, persistently drives you out into the street, do not resist. Walking through the city center, your favorite neighborhood or park with a thermos of tea or mulled wine in one hand and a clapperboard in the other can bring many pleasant and magical moments.
STRONGER FOR THE BARANK
If you did not drink, then half an hour or an hour before the New Year, get behind the wheel, go to any federal highway, which will almost certainly be completely empty, and shout “Hurray-ah!” With the chimes. At the same time, squeezing out as much as possible a signal and literally driving at full speed into your own and only your New Year.
Head to the nearest ice rink – despite the new restrictions, they are planned to be open. Bring your player, headphones and a canteen of your favorite drink with you to keep warm. Enjoy the atmosphere, look at people, catch moments of happiness. With a high degree of probability, such a New Year celebration will be remembered as one of the best.
Celebrating the New Year in virtual reality is also a meeting. Diablo, Half-Life, Call of Duty, Dota 2, World of Tanks and other games will not only allow you to immerse yourself in diverse worlds, but also to be with those who are close to you in spirit. Shout into the microphone and congratulate each other, even if you are sworn enemies on the screen.
IN DRY RESIDUE
Solo New Year is when you can afford not to rush around the apartment in an attempt to simultaneously clean up and cook a dozen dishes. Do not participate in conversations about politics and the coronavirus, which are tired of gritting teeth, do not calm down drunk friends.
It doesn’t matter, a smart suit or pajamas, kefir or champagne, a box of tangerines or a bowl of Olivier. And it doesn’t even matter how difficult this year was for us. Better not to feel sorry for yourself and understand that one night a year means nothing. And not to do what you don’t want to do, because you have to.
The only “must” is to please yourself. And therefore it is worth preparing for New Year’s Eve, because the most important guest will come to you – you yourself.
